High Ceilings, High Thoughts

This is interesting: Environment Matters -- from Eide Neurolearning Blog.

When subjects looked at a list of different sports-related items in high ceiling environments, they were more likely to draw abstract relationships and connections between items. On the other hand, subjects in low ceiling environments were better at identifying specific differences among the items so fewer common groups were generated.
I wonder if this relates at all to Charlotte Mason's focus on getting kids outside for a large part of the day, since the sky is the ceiling there.

It also makes me think of the question of Church architecture.
